To use Function Imports, use the following solutions:

  1. From the metadata, take the Function Import name, and HttpMethod.

  2. The URL with parameters in console should be :

            Syntax :<FunctionImportName>?<Parameter>=’<value>’

            Example :’XXXXXXXXXX’ (where XXXXXXXX is Phone Number)

     3. Set the Request Header value should be same as HttpMethod from the metadata, in this case it is GET.
